Traveling in an RV—without the hassle of airport security checks—is a favorite mode of transportation for many families. But before hitting the road, it’s best to set aside time to plan your trips in advance to help things go as smoothly as possible. Here are some questions to ask when planning RV travel.
How much time do you have for a trip?
The timeline for each trip you take must include the time it takes to reach a destination, how long you wish to stay there and the time it takes to return home. Whether you have a week or a month, knowing this timeline is crucial for planning the rest of the trip.
Where do you want to go?
Once you have your timeframe, you can start mapping out places that you can reach on time to spend a nice getaway. There are plenty of online resources that can help you determine possible destinations. Some families feel comfortable visiting favorite campgrounds, while others prefer to explore new territory.
Who will be traveling?
Be mindful of your travel companions. You may need to make special arrangements depending on the needs of young children, elderly relatives or pets. Keeping tabs on who goes on each trip is also helpful when it comes to packing.
What do you want to do?
Many destinations boast an assortment of activities, but your destination selection may be swayed if you want to do something in particular, like hiking or wildlife watching. When settled on a location, check the city’s event calendar to assist with the timing of you trip; there may be an event that you’d like to attend (or one you’d rather avoid because of crowds).
